It seems like every year I enter this same battle. I’m inclined to throw in the towel, but I imagine that would only make the problem worse. The problem is the vicious Cycle of 8. Eight Pounds.
In the Fall my work ramps up, and I spend more time sitting. All the super-fun active things I love to do start to get pushed aside because of work and other commitments. The days get shorter, the weather turns colder. There’s a birthday followed by Thanksgiving followed by Halloween Candy followed by Christmas (and now Valentines Day and another Birthday) and poof before you know it: I’ve become a carb addict who sits around all day. These 2 things are a bad combination. We all know that in order to lose weight we need to exercise more and eat less. Well it works in reverse, and it takes just as long: eat more, exercise less, gain weight.
For me breaking the cycle is the tricky part.
I know that my appetite drops when I’m more active. And I also know that when I eat better I have more energy. The problem is that at this point all I want is a piece of chocolate cake and some cookies and to curl up with a good book or my computer.
It would have been best to fight the food problem back in the fall and commit to the treadmill even twice a week. But I didn’t so here I am.
Yeah, my jeans are kinda tight…but so what? I’ve got yoga pants. What kind of attitude is that? Seriously, I need to kick myself in the pants. And maybe even wear yoga pants for doing yoga. Some days I’m sure I’m my own worst enemy.
